Great
John was professional and efficient in replacing my alternator. I was pleased with the Your Mechanic service and I would use them again. Getting a quote and setting the appointment was very easy to do. It was really nice to have someone come to the house and not have to worry about getting the car to the shop.

Attila was very efficient,nice and helpful.
Attila replaced the alternator and belt. He was very knowledgeable, and explained the different tasks. He also suggested future services, but not in a high-pressure way. He takes great pride in his work. I would recommend him to others.

William was on time and very polite. I showed him to the car and what I was told was wrong with it. He told me he would look it over and replace the parts so I left him to do his thing. 45 minutes later he had the job done and took his time to inspect and test drive the car. His price was fair and the work was great! Will use again!

Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.
